This preamp is cosmetically fine and sounds great. This model was made while Klipsch owned the Aragon line. Here is the description from the indyaudio site - the new holder of the Mondial brand:
The Aragon 28K MKII pre-amplifier is an absolutely beautiful piece that delivers incredibly reliable high-power output. It offers the powerful, dynamic performance of high-end boutique products at substantially lower prices.
Using fully discrete Class A circuitry from input to output, this line-level stereo preamp offers frequency response from 5Hz to 20kHz with just .04% THD and 98dB S/N. It features 6 L/R RCA inputs, 2 L/R RCA preouts and 2 L/R RCA tape outputs, along with remote volume, mute, balance and power controls.The Aragon 28K MKII features a machined aluminum front panel with an engraved Aragon logo and elegant blue LED lighting that perfectly complements the available black or silver finish options.
I was tempted to rate this at 8/10 due to performance and cosmetics, but went with 7/10 since if is an older model. I will pay shipping and Paypal if my asking price is met. I have the remote and original carton. The manual is on the indyaudio site.
